Venture with Lovelo
We are often asked for local off-road riding tips and routes. Berkhamsted is the gateway to the Chilterns and we have some of the best off road riding in the area on our doorstep – So we decided to organise a monthly event to show you what all the fun is about!
We’re delighted to partner with local trail guiding company, The Venture Trails Collective to offer our community a monthly guided off-road ride on the fantastic selection of trails that we have to offer here in Berko. Whether you are new to off-road riding or are skilled and experienced, we will have a group for you. All flavours of off-road bike welcome – Gravel, MTB, E-MTB – we love them all!
Date: Once a month on a Thursday evening. See scheduling link for the next event.
Where? The courtyard at Lovelo Cycle works.
How long and how far? All our groups will ride for between 90 and 120 minutes, our routes will vary to reflect the different speeds that we will be travelling at.
Cost: £7 including complimentary post- ride drink.
